Hout Bay | Covid-19 Response

Our current project entails ensuring every Hout Bay resident has food on the table during the current crisis.

We are collecting food and distributing it to Imizamo Yethu & Hangberg and other communities during the national lockdown and the inevitable economic challenges which will follow.

How You Can Help

Hunger Relief

Contribute next time you visit Pick ‘n Pay and other benevolent grocers. You can buy selected items and drop them off in the collection bins at the entrance.


Join our team on the ground and help us setup collection bins, pack food and deliver parcels to the hungry… or just offer courage in your own way.

Help us to reach our R30mil target so that we are able to feed all the residents in Hout Bay who are unable to put food on the table.  Boost our reach so that we can also support neighbouring communities.

Collaborate with us and help spread the important message that the Covid Crisis is actually about food and ensuring the hungry are fed. Build Courage in your community.


“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” ― Nelson Mandela

About Courage

The Courage Initiative was born out of crisis and the need to stand together as one in order to triumph.

We bring together heroes, communities and NGOs to work with solidarity to overcome difficult times.

Our focus is on pooling people, funding and resources in the most cost-effective and impactful way to address the most dire needs of affected communities.

Our Mission

To inspire all Africans to have the Courage to stand as one and create a safer more resilient society.

Hunger Crisis

The most serious consequence of any crisis is the lack of ability to have food on the table. If people from all walks of life collaborate, everyone can eat.

Our Start

A Hout Bay resident wanted to wake up from pancreatic surgery knowing that she had mobilized her community into action. She pledged the first R1mil to start the food distribution program, knowing that many of her neighbours were going hungry during the lockdown. She believes now more than ever is the time to be working together to help those in need.

Where Your Money Goes

We want you to know that 100% of the money you donate is used purely in the effort to feed our hungry. 

The community has provided free warehousing and every job needed in the chain is being fulfilled by local residents and others who are standing up.


How It Works

We safely deliver food door-to-door for the people that need it.

Local Partners

We are working with local NGO’s, Community Groups, Churches, and Sports Clubs, all of which have trusted relationships within our communities.

Food Purchasing

We are collecting funding from our community who all want to help, and with great governance over this generosity, we are ensuring everything donated is getting to where it is most needed.

Collection & Delivery

Our Courage team collects the food from collection points growing around Hout Bay, sanitizes it and puts it directly in the hands of our trusted partners who deliver it straight into the community.
